Vintage Christmas Decorating

By December 16, 2011December 11th, 2012Christmas, Decorating, Holidays

We have been busy little Elves creating our Vintage Christmas Decorating here! Earlier this week we shared our Holiday Home Tour, but I wanted to be sure to give you all a little closer look at the Foyer and the cool Ladder in the Kitchen. We created both without spending a single penny!

I love how warm and inviting the Foyer is now. And even though we have a tree with lights, I think we could leave it up all through the winter.

We placed several large branches from the yard in a galvanized bucket and filled it in with some dirt and stones, and wrapped the bottom with burlap. Then the lights were added.

I made some simple paper chains from scrapbook paper that looked like sheet music. The little blue birds add a touch of color and a few wooden snowmen tag ornaments.

Some rustic brown ornaments and another paper chain.

The Aqua Mason Jars are filled with Epsom Salt and a battery operated tea light to add a little glow. I added some twigs and a little green from the yard. We had one lantern left after we decorated the front porch, so it was placed on the bottom step.

An old chair, scarf and pillow were added in and an vintage pair of skates. I just love shopping my house and pulling it all together.

Now moving on to the kitchen…

Vintage {Junky} Kitchen Decorating

I think Doug thought I had lost my mind when I asked him to hang the ladder above the kitchen sink. But after I was done decorating it, he loved it. And I do too…it’s one of my favorite spots this season.

There are a few antique cookie cutters, some celebrate Christmas, some I just love. The chalkboard tags were leftover from the Kitchen Tree, my good friend Gina sent them to me.

I love the mixture of the old red cookie cutter and the copper gingerbread boy.

A few Vintage Ornaments that belonged to my Mother-in-law and a cool vintage kitchen utensil leftover from the Kitchen Tree. The letter was left from the Wine Bottle Cover we created for Gifts from the Kitchen Series on Pocket Change Gourmet.

I used twine to hang everything, and clothes pins to add the greenery from the yard.

So what do you think? Pretty cool? Kinda junky? Kinda vintage?

I love both areas! In fact, I’m really lovin’ all the Christmas Decorations this year!!
